Christi Genet Kapp practices the polymathic way. She creates and connects combinations of people, processes and things. She does this in a variety of ways including sculpting, leather work, writing, starting/growing/selling businesses, or working as an information technology leader and consultant. Her artistic experience includes motorcycle concept design, metal work, leather work, and graphic design for Art In Motion, LLC. Mediums she uses most often include metal, leather art, pencils and fiber.
At the core of each art piece she creates you will find concepts of “BE-ing”, achieving , innovating and triumph. Her art is practice for innovation. If she can imagine it, she can do it, and through her art she wants to teach everyone else to think and succeed the same way.
